We propose an exact simulation method for Brown-Resnick random fields, building on new representations for these stationary max-stable fields. The main idea is to apply suitable changes of measure. 
Regularly varying random fields
Exact simulation of max-stable processes.
TLDR
This work presents a new algorithm for exact simulation of a max-stable process at a finite number of locations that relies on the idea of simulating only the extremal functions, that is, those functions in the construction of a Maximum Stable Process that effectively contribute to the pointwise maximum.
Efficient simulation of Brown‒Resnick processes based on variance reduction of Gaussian processes
Abstract Brown‒Resnick processes are max-stable processes that are associated to Gaussian processes. Their simulation is often based on the corresponding spectral representation which is not unique.
Sampling sup‐normalized spectral functions for Brown–Resnick processes
Sup‐normalized spectral functions form building blocks of max‐stable and Pareto processes and therefore play an important role in modelling spatial extremes. For one of the most popular examples, the
Approximation of Sojourn Times of Gaussian Processes
We investigate the tail asymptotic behavior of the sojourn time for a large class of centered Gaussian processes X, in both continuous- and discrete-time framework. All results obtained here are new
A Comparative Tour through the Simulation Algorithms for Max-Stable Processes
Being the max-analogue of $\alpha$-stable stochastic processes, max-stable processes form one of the fundamental classes of stochastic processes. With the arrival of sufficient computational
Bayesian inference for the Brown-Resnick process, with an application to extreme low temperatures
TLDR
This paper exploits a case in which the full likelihood of a Brown-Resnick process can be calculated, using componentwise maxima and their partitions in terms of individual events, and proposes two new approaches to inference.

TLDR
This paper derives the exact tail asymptotics of α(t)-locally stationary Gaussian processes with non-constant variance functions and shows that some certain variance functions lead to qualitatively new results.
High-dimensional peaks-over-threshold inference for the Brown-Resnick process
Max-stable processes are increasingly widely used for modelling complex extreme events, but classical fitting methods are computationally demanding, limiting applications to a few dozen variables.

TLDR
A new class of models is introduced, which are based on stationary Gaussian random fields, and whose realizations are not necessarily semi-continuous functions, and who form a newclass of bivariate extreme value distributions.

TLDR
This work gives a new representation of Pickands' constants, which arise in the study of extremes for a variety of Gaussian processes, and resolves the long-standing problem of devising a reliable algorithm for estimating these constants.

To each max-stable process with α-Fréchet margins, α ∈ (0,2), a symmetric α-stable process can be associated in a natural way. Using this correspondence, we deduce known and new results on spectral
